Ahead of next month’s Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Chad, former Super Eagles midfielder Mutiu Adepoju has warned that Nigeria cannot afford to drop points against the Chadians.
Adopoju, a veteran of three World Cups for Nigeria, says the Super Eagles must avoid ‘by all means’ how they started the qualifiers for the last Africa Cup of Nations.
“They must not start the way they did the last when Congo came here and beat us 3-2. They must by all means, ensure they don’t drop any points in that game against Chad.
“It’s easy to underrate them because they are not a prominent football nation on the continent but the players must understand that any team facing them irrespective on their standing on the continent would always put in extra effort to get something.
“It’s the same thing the Congolese did and also the same thing the Sudanese did the last time when they all beat us.
